Subject: 18.04.16 Up to 3 Senior Researchers (Postdoctoral level) in Computational Chemistry/Biology
Uppsala University is a comprehensive research-intensive university with a strong
international standing. Our mission is to pursue top-quality research and education and
to interact constructively with society. Our most important assets are all the individuals
whose curiosity and dedication make Uppsala University one of Swedens most exciting
workplaces. Uppsala University has 42,000 students, 7,000 employees and a turnover of
SEK 6.7 billion.

At the Department of Cell and Molecular Biology The Department of Cell and Molecular 
Biology is one of the most international, broad and distinguished biomolecular 
departments in Europe, comprising seven research programs covering subjects such as
bioinformatics, microbiology, and biophysics.

The Kamerlin group seeks up to three senior researchers (at postdoctoral level or above)
to join our team. We are an international and interdisciplinary team of dedicated scientists
who come from different backgrounds to study biochemical problems such as enzyme
evolution, and structure-function-dynamics relationships in biomolecular systems, as well
as fundamental problems in physical organic chemistry, using a range of advanced 
computational tools. Where relevant to solving problems of interest to us, we also engage
in methodology development. These positions are funded by a range of sources including
the Swedish Research Council and the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation. More details
about our team, and our research interests, can be found on the lab website:

Full time research, mentorship of junior researchers, and the possibility of teaching duties 
(up to 20%). The position will also include international travel to conferences and meetings
with collaborators. From a scientific perspective, this position will involve computational 
integration of simulation and experimental data using a range of molecular simulation tools, 
including both standard and enhanced molecular dynamics simulations, empirical valence 
bond and QM/MM simulations, free energy calculations, structural bioinformatics and machine 
learning techniques.

Qualifying Requirements
A PhD and strong scientific background in computational chemistry and/or computational 
biology, with experience in one or more of the techniques used in the Kamerlin lab (see 
Duties, above). Excellent communication skills in written and spoken English is a 
prerequisite, as well as publications of a high scientific standard (assessed according to 
the DORA principles, see Also necessary are good collaborative 
skills, such as working with others in a team. All qualifying requirements will be assessed
by interview as well as personal references.

Additional Desirable Skills
Programming skills and/or expertise in structural bioinformatics, statistical mechanics or 
machine learning approaches. Great weight will be places on personal attributes such as
independent initiative, creative thinking and scientific maturity.

Your application should contain:

A copy of your PhD diploma,
CV and publication list, with the most important 3 to 5 publications highlighted,
A covering letter
Contact information for at least two prior supervisors or other professors who are willing
to provide letters of reference.
